Song Lyrics and Transcript

From 1994 video

Greg: We're going to do a song all about shaking now. But before we do, let's get into our shaking clothes. Ready? 1, 2, 3.

(The Wiggles snap their fingers and their shaking clothes magically come on.)

From 1998 video

Greg: We're going to do some shaking, but first, we need to get into our shaking clothes!

Jeff: I've got a great idea for some shaking clothes!

Anthony: Wahoo, I've got a great idea for some shaking clothes, too!

Greg: Wa-hee! I've got a great idea for some shaking clothes!

(Murray says nothing and shrugs)

Jeff: I got my shaking clothes.

Anthony: I got my shaking clothes.

Greg: I've got my shaking clothes.

Murray: Are you ready to shake? Let's all shake together!

Lyrics

Hey there, shaky shaky

Shaking is fun to do

Hey there, shaky shaky

I want to shake with you... Well...then...shake a little faster.

Shake a little slower.

Greg: Keep on shaking. Shaky shaky.

Hey there, shaky shaky

Shaking is fun to do

Hey there, shaky shaky

I want to shake with you... Well...then...shake a little faster.

Shake a little slower.

Greg: Keep on shaking now. Shake it all out.

Shaky!

Epilogue from 1994 video

Greg: Wow. That was a lot of fun shaking, but it's time to get back into our Wiggles clothes now.

Ready? 1, 2, 3.

(The Wiggles snap their fingers and they're back into their Wiggly clothes.)
